You know it will just not quit raining up here. It's getting old. One of the guys I work with, Matt, told me that last year Suckville had 45 days of sun total. All year. I've been living here two months to the day and I can count on one hand how many even moderately nice days we've had. I'm going stir-crazy. I wonder if this is God's idea of a sick joke.
In other news, our next-door neighbors have decided to take on a full scale project that involves a lot of hammering. And our walls are really thin, so for about three days now the constant hammering has really been getting to us. Why does anyone need to hammer that much? And we can't get outside because its raining.
My physics professor said that time travel is impossible because it breaks the Law of Conservation of Mass. He's thinking in a three dimensional sense, though. If you thihnk of time as a fourth dimension and the Earth at all times in its life as a closed system, the law is not broken. But I don't believe in time travel anyway, though it makes interesting science fiction (the Time Machine, anyone?). We've been discussing time travel in FS is the reason I even bring it up, and sometimes just thinking about it gives me a headache.
However, I just finished Rendezvous with Rama. It was an excellent book. I don't know if I believe in aliens but if I did these would be the sort of aliens I would believe in. Rama itself is facinating. I wish Clarke would have cleared up a few of the mysteries he presented but I guess that was the whole point of the novel. Mostly I wanted to hear more about the science behind the Ramans' space drive, because that was really cool.
So I finished my bias scarf that I was knitting, and I began a little matching hairband. Probably I'll get pictures of both up later on tonight or else tomorrow.
Oh, and I'm almost done your art meme, blown_lightbulb
